Testimonials for Gina's Training
"The best training course I have ever been on"
"A great insight into LEGO-based therapy"
"Gina was so informative and approachable"
"Good structure, very informative, excellent delivery and useful materials"
"Very well run course, and easy to see how I can now set up a group"
"It was extremely informative, enjoyable and fun. Gina made us all feel very welcome and made the day an adventure – the staff and venue was first class and the other attendees I met were very sociable and lovely people. We all said how much we enjoyed the course and keen to implement our training just as soon as we returned home."
"It was everything that I wished for as I got the confirmation we were delivering the intervention correctly but also planned adaptions for some of our kids which I thought were innovative, you had already adapted and implemented. I feel so inspired and motivated it is impossible to adequately put it into words."
